About Grampy Bobby

No longer capable of tactical brilliancies. Quite content nowadays to navigate familiar
turf, festina lente, hopeful my opponents' errors/blunders may often exceed my own.

"You need not play well, just help your opponent to play badly." -Genrikh Chepukaitis.
“The tactician must know what to do whenever something needs doing; the strategist
must know what to do when nothing needs doing” -Tartakover. “Only the player with
the initiative has the right to attack” -Wilhelm Steinitz.

"My left is weakened. My right is broken. The situation is excellent. I'm on the attack."
Field Communiqué to Headquarters, Marshal Foch (French Commander, 1851-1929)

“There are two kinds of people: those who say to God, 'Thy will be done,' and those
to whom God says, 'All right, then, have it your way'" -C.S. Lewis. "Religion is the
fashionable substitute for belief." -Oscar Wilde. 'There's a hole in the heart of man
in the shape of God. If I believe in the Risen Christ and it's just an artful falsehood,
there is nothing to lose. If true, then I have everything to gain.' -Pascal (1623-1662)

"If God didn't exist, what possible difference would it make whether or not people put
their faith in Him?" -JV. "Any man can make mistakes. Only an idiot persists in his
error." -W. Churchill. "Arrogance can be wounded, virtue can't."

What's the profit in turning a deaf ear or value in being on the wrong side of history?

"Everything you add to the truth subtracts from the truth. When truth is discovered
by someone else, it loses something of its attractiveness." -Alexander Solzhenitsyn.
"The great enemy of the truth is very often not the lie (deliberate, contrived, and
dishonest) but the myth (persistent, persuasive, and unrealistic)." -John F. Kennedy.
In chess and life, "The truth will set you free but first it will piss you off." -M. Pancoast

Summary: His Grace/our gratitude. Sans Dieu Rien.
